This weekend Jen and I swung through the local Library to grab some fall reading material. I tend to switch back and forth between science fiction/fantasy and non-fiction. And since my most recent book was all about the design and construction of Brunelleschi’s dome in Florence, it was time for me to blissfully surrender to fiction literature.
But I needed a recommendation. So I decided to start crawling through the unread books on this NPR ‘your choice’ list.
Here’s the start of the list:
NOTE: the formatting is way easier to read if you open the ‘read more’ link below.
Lord of the Rings: Yes
Hitchikers Guide: Nope
Ender’s Game: Yup
A song of Ice and Fire: Negative
FahrenHeit 451: No
Foundation Trilogy: Yes
Brave New World: Yup
American Gods: Yes (didn’t like it)
Princess Bride: Saw the Movie – didn’t know it was a book
Wheel of Time: No.
Animal Farm: Surprisingly not
Stranger in a strange land: Reading it now!!
Kingkiller Chronicles: Yes
and then after these first 18, with the exception of Stardust and the Time Traveler’s Wife, I haven’t read any! That gives me a paltry record of: 13 out of 100. 13%… Terrible.
What’s your science fantasy literacy rate?
